Gene is a supporting character in Wreck-It Ralph.
He is voiced by Raymond S. Persi.
On the 30th anniversary of their game, Gene, Felix, and the Nicelanders are celebrating in the penthouse, along with many famous video game characters such as Sonic and Pac-Man. Just then, Gene answers the door, believing it to be another guest. Instead, he finds Ralph. Gene warns the others who fear Ralph will wreck the party. They tell Felix to send him off, but the bashful hero indirectly invites him in. When the furious Gene begins to ostracize Ralph, the video game bad guy quickly begins to lose his temper. Ralph asks Gene if winning a medal will earn him respect, and Gene declares that if he won a medal, the entire penthouse would be handed over to him. Gene then declares that Ralph winning a medal would never occur anyway because he's just the bad guy who wrecks the building, causing Ralph to crush the cake in anger, proving Gene right. Ralph then leaves the party to find and earn a medal.
The next day, a young girl prepares to play the game, but Ralph is nowhere to be found. Mr. Litwak, the owner of the arcade, places an out of order sign on the cabinet, unfortunately telling the player the game will be unplugged in the morning if it can't be fixed. Gene and the Nicelanders run into a panic until Q*bert arrives and tells them Ralph's gone to Hero's Duty. Felix goes to save him but never returns, prompting the Nicelanders to flee to Game Central Station. Gene stays behind for one last martini when Ralph suddenly arrives with a medal. Gene explains that because of Ralph's absence, the game has been put out of order and is scheduled to be unplugged in the morning. Gene then gathers his belongings and heads out, handing over the keys to the penthouse over to Ralph, as promised.
Fortunately, the next day, Ralph and Felix return and the game is saved. Gene and the Nicelanders, finally realizing how important Ralph is, begin to treat their bad guy much better, even giving him his own cake. Gene is also seen attending Felix and Sergeant Calhoun's (the lead character in Hero's Duty) wedding, shown to be perplexed by all of the soldiers aiming rifles at the center window of the church (unaware of the tragedy that struck at Calhoun's last wedding).
